DJ Hollywood Brings the Beat to DayDream
A veteran in the club industry, DJ Hollywood is no newcomer to the Las Vegas scene. Having manned the decks at some of the most legendary venues in town (including RA Nightclub at the Luxor and the world famous PURE at Caesars Palace) he’s bringing his talent to M at DayDream Pool Club.
Hollywood has worked side by side with superstars such as DJ AM, Paul Van Dyk, Bob Sinclair, Tiesto, and Grand Master Flash. Aside from performing, he also owns and operates The Beatclan, which represents other top-name DJ’s, celebrities and recording artists. Needless to say, he’s got a hot lineup coming to our pool this season.
We caught up with the celebrity DJ to get the DL on what we can look forward to in terms of poolside entertainment.
What are you most looking forward to with performing at DayDream?
I’ve headlined and directed the biggest day/nightlife venues in the world from Wet Republic to PURE and I can honestly say that DayDream intrigues me the most! The layout and intimate setting enables me to throw down a more eclectic set than I normally would spin. I get to recreate myself every time I’m on the decks. You can’t ask for much more as a DJ.
What’s it like spinning at DayDream compared to other pool venues in Las Vegas?
M Resort draws a more sophisticated crowd than the other pool venues in Vegas. I’m able to be as creative as I’d like to, while veering away from Top 40/dance hits that you’ll likely hear at every other dayclub.
How do you try to approach your sets?
I approach every session differently. My sets are filled with peaks and valleys taking my crowd on a journey that always leaves them wanting more.
What genres or artists influence you the most and what do you listen to on your own time?
I’m an expert in over ten genres, ranging from the 50′s to today’s music and I honestly can’t put a finger on which genre has influenced me and my profession the most. But, in my quiet time, I get lost in contemporary music. Sade, Billy Joel, Matisyahu, to name a few.
Any favorite songs or artists?
For the dance floor: Titanium or David Guetta. In the car, any Frank Sinatra and while I play poker, Sade.
What can we expect this season from you and the other DJs from The Beatclan?
I represent, in my estimation, the best core DJ crew in the city. Expect nothing but the best.
The Beatclan is also producing 98.5 KLUC’s Summer Jam event. Tell us a little about that.
Summer Jam is going to be nuts and there’s no better venue to host it than the M Resort’s pool! The Wanted, Karmin, HardNox, Chris Renee and myself will be performing on June 17. This is truly a can’t-miss event!
You can catch DJ Hollywood and other DJs from The Beatclan spinning every Saturday, Sunday and Monday at DayDream Pool Club. For additional information on The Beatclan and DJ Hollywood, visit Beatclan.com and DJHollywood.net.
